  • Bank Of America: Diamonds Are Forever [View article]
    From observation over several decades NYC, I have to state that M and RL have it right; the TBTFs have moved to a position where moving money around is an end in itself. An indicator of this dysfunctionality is that, though they are flush with money, most potential small lenders (by for the biggest requirement in total capital) report they can't get funding as banks nowadays seem only interested in multibillion$ projects. This is a major brake on the economy, holding back real job creation, but never mind; come the next crash, there'll be more tarps and QE, and the TBTFs will be fine once more, and on we go on the never ending merry-go-round. The trouble is this is starting to look more like a tail spin than an MGO, but neither politicians nor economists seem aware of this! QE is not a solution; it is merely an off-putting mechanism...

    Rather than beat up on the poorest paid, M, how about doing something about their executive "compensations", which beat the already ridiculous industry average by 40% to 34%! Such payments used to be the reserve of a company's owners, not the hired hands!

    Not mine, NYC (Wellington was english, not welsh) but it's more to do with having been fired, which is the kiss of death to an engineer's career, over here, and quite unlike your "hire and fire" attitude. More a case of "fire once, never hire again", and I wish the pundits who write for your magazines would get this, as they are forever spouting out solutions for Europe's economic woes, which just aren't going to work with the attitudes of management over here.

    I should think so, NYC; I prefer to bang in private...

    As if life isn't complicated enough already! I can't help concluding that the real purpose of such, is to keep the advantages with the insiders...

    The only possibility, I'd say, Kurt; it seems an awful match in every other respect!

    Yes please mag; it looks like a horrible fit to me; why would MS want to buy yet another phone division that isn't selling? If it hasn't happened yet, they are due to access BBM in time, so no need to buy it. MS wants BBRY type security? Well, the certainly need it, but after more than a decade of leaky IE, could they ever have any credibility on this score, where potential purchasers are concerned?

    Interesting D, but it seems like a strange mash up, to me!

    SB; "tones of potential"? Do you mean shading, or is FB now going to add writing pop songs to their armory, in the hope that some of them may become hit singles?

    RL, we've no chance of evading another crisis, as those who cause them are looking out for their own interests, so nothing ever really changes. So, no such big sticks, either!

    You left out the rise of people no longer looking for work, Nic. So how do they survive, one might ask? Crime seems to be the most likely answer. But wait; crime statistics are falling, so how can that be? Well, if the trends I've seen in the UK and France in recent decades are any indication, that can be explained by the fact that the police hardly bother to investigate petty crime any more; they are only interested in investigations which have a high chance of leading to prosecutions, i.e. a result. Given modern management techniques, police involvement which may discourage crime, is not a concrete result, and thus of no interest.

    The public may think differently, but as long as they focus on a candidate's ideology, more effective policing is not likely to earn more votes, and so things will continue top deteriorate, and services to become more dysfunctional, whilst the rich keep getting richer. However did things become this way?
